Born/raised in Sioux City. Sioux City Community School District (public) both as a student and staff member. Sioux City offers a lot as far as ways to get involved and stay entertained. Many parks and recreational facilities, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and restaurants, shopping centers, and a thriving arts community. Community-wide festivals each year: Saturday in the Park, Greek Fest, Art Splash, Mardi Gras Parades, etc. Sioux City is growing and expanding. NEW Hard Rock Casino/Resort, restaurants, and attractions. Sioux City is a great place to raise a family. Sioux City, once called "Little Chicago," has a rich history and is a known site for Lewis and Clark .There are many philanthropies, out-reach programs, and churches in the area. Sioux City is a central location, ideal for traveling/visiting Omaha, NE; Sioux Falls, SD; etc. Quality medical facilities. Hot/humid Summers. Very cold Winters. Lovely Spring/Fall- the people make up for it.

I lived here for my whole life, and I must say it's a very beautiful place. If you like places where most people keep to themselves, this is probably one of the places. Sioux City won't have like a Disney Land or something like that, but the parks are very beautiful if you're into nature!
I like all the different places to shop and the beautiful river side. It is a big city with a lot of different things to do. It is very diverse with all the different ethnicities in one area. It is expanding with more hotels, apartment complexes. Shopping mall is awesome! Schools are good and offer great curriculum and extracurricular activities.
